The Chinese New Year celebration of The Year of the Dog begins in just under a month.

We love, ok we are obsessed with, anything and everything having to do with dogs! So not surprisingly, we cannot get enough of Gucci's Year of the Dog Instagram campaign.

Nicholas Sparks is the bestselling author of 18 novels. Eight of his books — Message in a Bottle, a Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe, Dear John, The Last Song, The Lucky One and Safe Haven — have been made into movies. Here are his tips for writing the perfect one-liner
Keep it STRONG
Be committed. Your line must convey love, and convey it in no uncertain terms. Stay away from language that is open for interpretation or that leaves room for doubt—avoid words like “might” and “maybe.”
Keep it SINCERE
Think about love as a very real, personal thing between you and the person you love. Find inspiration from your relationship. What does this love mean to you?
Keep it SIMPLE
Your goal is to convey your feelings—not your intelligence. Don’t be too wordy, and if you’re going to use metaphor, pick one; it’s better to have one metaphor that says it all than a number of metaphors that each fall short in their own way.
Keep it SHORT
Do not hide your message in an endless parade of phrases, words, and descriptions. Part of what makes the phrase “I love you” so powerful is that it evokes such a powerful emotion in so few words.
